the sun. for kristin, it means more migraines. >> i get more in the summer. when they get bad i have to spend hours or even a whole day in bed. >> reporter: and kristin isn't alone. migraine sufferers often have more frequent debillitating and painful headaches this time of year. the picnic menu at backyard barbecues and parties is partly to blame. >> cold cuts, pastrami, salami. those are typically made with nitrates as are hot dogs. so people eat more of those in the summer and those chemicals can trigger headaches. >> reporter: the weather itself is another culprit. heat and humidity cause the body to sweat and lose water and sodium. dehydration can spark a headache. too much time in the summer sun is another serious headache trigger. so are summer allergens like grass pollen and summer storms with big dips in the barometric pressure can also spell trouble. >> when the storm clouds are rolling in, when there is a big "l" on the weather map, people need to be a little more
5:26 pm
